As owner of Mu-43.com, I've been offered the chance to know about certain equipment prior to launch and possibly have time to prepare a "hands on" report for that equipment. However, the stipulation is that I have to sign a non-dislosure agreement (NDA), meaning that I can't spill any beans prior to launch. The good thing about going the NDA route is that I get to see and sometimes try stuff early and prepare posts/articles/reports for posting at the time of release. The downside to signing an NDA is that I can't participate in the fun of posting speculation, rumors, etc. Members could still discuss those rumors in the forums, but I couldn't comment or post them on the "front page". So far, as opportunities have come around, I have declined them. I don't like the idea of knowing something I can't share. What do you think? Is it worth having the rumors/speculation, or would you rather see a "Mu-43 Hands-On" when new gear gets officially announced? We can't have it both ways!
